How can I play older games like Crystal Caves, Commander Keen, and Heretic?

I'm running Windows 7 x64 edition. Compatibility mode for even Win95 doesn't work

ScummVM works mighty well too!

Speaking of old games, FREE Fallout, Marathon Trilogy & Star Control 2: http://www.gamesradar.com/f/30-comme...02122153157099

ScummVM will only work with games using the Scumm engine (Full Throttle, Day of the Tentacle, etc.) or a couple that it was specifically modified to run.

DOSbox is the way to go, fairly easy to setup and works like a charm. Check http://www.gog.com as well, they have a ton of old games that are DRM free, certified to work and are cheap as hell.

Steam also has Commander Keen available.

IIRC http://www.abandonia.com/ is a good source for abandonware.

haven't downloaded anything from them for awhile now, but I spent a shitload of time revisiting Transport Tycoon a couple of years back.

FWIW, Steam has all of these games for pretty cheap (The apogee pack was like 5$ and they run in a dosbox.)

DOSbox. I have been going though my PC collection from the 90's and playing a bunch of old titles. All seem to work just fine. You can also create a VM of a Win9X install and run from there as well.
